Farmers Market: Support local Michiganders and delight in Farmers Market surprise offerings
I love to go to the farmer’s markets in our area; you can’t beat the quality of really fresh food. Ann Arbor Farmers Market Manager Molly Notarianni suggests shopping without a list – it’ll help you stay flexible to take advantage of the wonderful and unexpected. If you’re looking for something special, call the manager.
